Is it kind of weird that the laser turntable company will send you a demo on cd ???

Funny you bring that up. My old boss was one of the original founders of Finial Technology which developed the laser turntable that eventually became ELP. He was bummed because the company took a different direction than what he hoped. He was a great boss and mentor for me back when I got out of college in 1990. He used to reminisce w/ one of our older analog engineers about audiophile stuff, like tube amps and turntables. I never understood the attraction, until now.

I've even considered giving him a ring to get his thoughts. But his audio "affliction" is something way outta my league. I knew he built a listening room into his house, knowing him it was dedicated 2 channel.

I picked up a decent Pioneer PL117D for $40. It has a Stanton needle, waiting for the Ortofon 10 to show up. One of my old George Benson CDs sounded FANTASTIC. Very impressed w/ my M22's and Pioneer 45TX. Now I'm really tempted to find a tube amp. Sounds a little thin, but hoping the new cartridge will help. I asked my wife and she impressed that it was an LP playing.

My guess is if you get a Rega P3, you will become hooked on vinyl. I haven't heard the Music Halls. Rega is easy to setup. And, I hear Music Hall tables are also.

I have a Music Hall MMF 2.1 LE w/ a Grado Red cart. As a starter turntable it is fantastic, but you have to upgrade the cart. Having said that, I will be upgrading to a MMF 7 soon because I have a few spare bucks burning a hole in my pocket.

Just past 11 PM PST. I'm sitting in front of my system on the new couch. I picked up some vinyl yesterday at a local used bookstore that is closing. Sad for the independent bookstores, Amazon, B&N, and Border's are killing them. And bummer for me, since it's a 2 minute bike ride from my house.

I got a Cuban orchestra LP called Ahi Viene Sonora Matancera. Lots of horns. Wow, the M22's are REALLY shining. Very bright music but the M22's handle them w/ grace, no harshness or siblance. After 2 years w/ them, I am STILL impressed.

I haven't listed to the others yet either, Grover Washington Jr, Count Basie, and some New Orleans Jazz. Although, I need this for background music as I take my online traffic class...

They didn't nail you with a BWI (biking while intoxicated), did they?

Nope. I got caught coming out of the freaking Dumbarton toll booth at 65. It's 55 but the sign doesn't come up until after a few hundred yards.
